Format: Paperback
This book explodes with a thrilling opening scene, that finds the protagonist, Allie, in enough trouble to push her family over the edge. You can tell instantly that she is a troubled soul who needs help. She is sassy, tomboyish and full of teenage anger yet she is also a pretty cool character.

From that first chapter I was sucked in and I knew I wouldn't be able to put the book down until I found out the truth. Imagine a mixture of Hogwarts and Mallory Towers but filled with murder instead of magic. That is what you get. This book blew me away. Half way through, the author had thrown so many red herrings at me, I was convinced that the school was a mental institution only to discover that I couldn't have got it more wrong if I tried. Talk about, keep me on my toes. I can usually work out which way a book is going, but Night School had me totally fooled from the beginning and the events that passed were surprises to me. I thought the plot of the book was brilliant. The truth behind Night School really amazed me and it is definitely something I haven't read before.

I loved Carter from the start and I could definitely see his potential long before Allie could. Allie seemed to be blinded to the charms of Sylvian, who I really wasn't keen on from the beginning. I am sure this little love triangle will continue through future books, but I am pretty sure I will be rooting for Carter throughout the series.

The school is really creepy. It has a very Gothic feel to it and the descriptions provide just the right amount of atmosphere to the story. Just my kind of school. I am desperate to discover where the school is that C.J. Daugherty based the book on.

For a debut novel, I thought this was fantastic.

Format: Paperback
I'm an avid reader of young adult fiction (even though I'm many years past young adult). Daugherty's debut novel is intelligent and well-written. The mystery gains speed as it races to a heart-pounding end...or should I say "beginning of book 2." Characters are well-developed, as is the setting. Daugherty is expert at placing the reader in the middle of the story. You'll be swept away by this book...and hungry for more of this author's work.

Format: Paperback
Allie Sheridan is just another troubled teenager being carted off to a school far away somewhere. Nothing particularly special. But there is something special, something strange, about the school she's being sent to - Cimmeria Academy. For one thing, why has Allie never heard of it before , and why can't she find any mention of it anywhere on the Internet? Things take a turn for the more mysterious when Allie arrives at Cimmeria. It's somewhat strange that she is there for the summer term - normally Cimmeria is attended in the summer only by 'students with promise' i.e. 'legacy' students - students whose families are connected to Cimmeria, and tend to be ridiculously rich, ridiculously gorgeous, ridiculously clever or any combination thereof. Allie is clearly none of these things so why is she here?

Things become even more mysterious when, whilst going through the Cimmeria Rules book, Allie reads:

5. Students in certain advanced areas of study take part in Night School to prepare them for life after Cimmeria, so you will sometimes hear them working late in the evening. Only very few select students are offered this opportunity; if you are not among them, you must not attempt to interfere with or observe Night School.

6. The identities of those involved in Night School are secret. Anyone who attempts to find out their identities will be punished.

7. ALL Night School activities are secret. Any member of Night School who tells anybody outside of Night School about those activities will be punished severely.

It was this mysteriousness that compelled me to pick up this book in the first place, and it was what drove me to keep reading.

Night School is a mysterious and thrilling book set in a spooky and slightly strange boarding school full of secrets. Be prepared to enter Cimmeria Academy; a school like no other...

Allie has been lost since her brother ran away. She's always getting into trouble and completely given up on everything. Her parents decide to send her away to a posh boarding school that they hope will straighten her up. Allie thinks that the school is going to be a nightmare, but surprisingly, Allie is quick to make friends and find that she is quite happy with the attention from Sylvian, an adorable French boy with a habit for flirting, and Carter; the loner of the school with secrets that Allie needs to uncover. She is quick to discover that the school isn't ordinary; the students being murdered is a sign for sure. But its also holding more secrets than anyone could ever imagine.

I was hooked it from the first page. Daugherty has a very likable and easy flowing writing style that I became lost in very quickly. I couldn't put the book down because I was so engaged in the story and was eager to find out how all the mysteries and dilemmas would be solved. Nope, there was no time for toilet breaks and cups of tea when there was some serious murdering business going on at a boarding school that demanded immediate attention.

Allie is an enjoyable character with a quirky and determined personality. I had a lot of fun reading from her perspective because she has a great sense of humor. Not to mention that her multiple entertaining encounters with Sylvian, the gorgeous French boy, and Carter, the dark and handsome loner, are absolutely adorable and, occasionally, swoon worthy.
